Article 122 of the food safety law of the people’s Republic of China

Supervision has something to say
The bakery mainly produces cakes and bread, and most of its products are sold to teenagers and children. In particular, because butter is rich in moisture, sugar and protein, it is a high-risk food. If it is polluted or stored improperly in the process of operation, it is very easy to deteriorate and endanger human health. Therefore, it is necessary to review whether the production conditions are up to standard and whether the production and processing process is in line with the regulations. The producer must obtain the food production license before engaging in production activities. The market supervision department investigated and dealt with this hidden processing and sales point, which safeguarded the interests of the masses and formed a better deterrent effect on the behavior of unlicensed production and operation.
Remind consumers to check the production and operation qualifications of businesses when buying various kinds of food, so as to avoid unnecessary vegetarianism. Businesses that do not meet the regulations can call 12315 to report.
